Hygienic practices are essential in all food premises.
Cleaning and sanitising are essential aspects of food hygiene, helping to ensure that food is safe for consumption and of suitable quality. But it is also essential that cleaning and sanitising products themselves do not make food unsafe or unsuitable for consumption.
FitForFood provides information on cleaning and sanitising in food premises. It provides an approach and resources for determining the suitability of commercial cleaning and sanitising products for food use. This is done in the context of food law in Australia.
